cell phone picture of Capitol - apparent objects

I took a cell phone picture of the U.S. Capitol after I watched the arrival of former President Ford's body there the night of Dec. 30, 2006.

The time is approximate.

I was standing in the middle of East Capitol Street facing the Capitol and facing generally west.

I did not see anything strange with my bare eyes, but when I took the cell phone picture of the Capitol there are these three lights shaped like oval objects that show up.

I took other pictures of the Capitol earlier that night and did not see any lights in the background.

I tried to send the image via the email address but am not sure that is the right address. I am sending it to the address on the webpage.

I apologize if this is not worth noting.

I thought that it looked strange upon seeing the picture.

((NUFORC Note: Photo shows multiple lights above the Capitol Building, which look somewhat reminiscent of landing lights on approaching airliners. However, the camera is pointed generally to the east, and no airliners are in that part of the sky near the Capitol. They would be far to the west of the Mall, as they approach Reagen International Airport. We suspect that the "objects" may be lens flares, generated by the bright lights, which light the front of the Capitol Building. PD))
